Known For

Thai

Top Chef contestant Leah Cohen’s Filipino-Thai fusion restaurant on the Lower East Side is known just as much for its pork-centric menu as it is for its killer playlists. Pig and Khao’s menu is divided between small and large plates, and with fatty but delicious dishes like the Sizzling Sisig (cubed, salty nibs of pork head topped with a whole egg), you might want to consult your cardiologist before making your way to the narrow Clinton Street spot. A perpetually sick R&B playlist acts as a soundtrack to your meal, while drinks like the Bangkok Fire from the rye-focused menu complement it. Why quit while you’re ahead? End the caloric night right with Halo-Halo, a crowd-favorite dessert comprised of shaved ice, leche flan, ube ice cream, and toasted Filipino sweet rice.
